#3 Locate the message or user profile that you want to report.
#4 Tap on the message. This will select it and reveal additional options at the top of the screen.
#5 In the options that appear at the top, look for the “Report” button (it may also be labeled as “Report spam” or something similar). Tap on this button.
#6 Telegram will then ask you to specify the reason for the report. Select the appropriate reason from the list provided (e.g., spam, harassment, inappropriate content).
#7 Depending on the reason you selected, Telegram may prompt you for additional information or details regarding the report. Provide any necessary information as accurately as possible.
Telegram’s moderation team will review the report and take appropriate action if necessary. Please note that reporting should be done responsibly and only for legitimate reasons. False reporting or misuse of this feature may have consequences.
Telegram primarily used an in-app reporting system to handle user reports. Reporting via email was not a standard method for reporting issues or users on Telegram. If you believe you need to report someone on Telegram using email, you can try the following steps:
If you have the option to report within the app, it’s usually the recommended and more straightforward method.
Telegram’s official reporting system was designed to be used within the Telegram app or platform. While it’s technically possible to use third-party apps or services to report someone on Telegram, it’s not the recommended or officially supported method. Here are a few reasons why:
Can other people report us? On Telegram, users have the option to report channels or groups if they believe they are violating Telegram’s policies or terms of service. While it’s not common for users to report channels or groups solely because they are gaining subscribers, it’s essential to adhere to Telegram’s policies and guidelines when growing your channel or group to avoid potential reports or issues.
Will the person I report know that I reported them? No, on Telegram, when you report a person, they will not be notified that you specifically reported them. The reporting process is designed to be anonymous to protect the privacy and security of users who make reports. Telegram does not disclose the identity of the person who reported the issue.
Is there a way to track the progress of my report on Telegram? Telegram did not provide a built-in feature for users to track the progress of their reports. When you report a user, you typically receive a confirmation message that your report has been submitted. But there isn’t a feature that allows you to track the status of your report in real time.
